Hey guys, thanks for adding me to the group. Do you believe the best advertising is word of mouth? My name’s Rick and I’ve been using Google, Facebook and Instagram ads for the past few years to spread the word about my local business which has increased my revenue by 22% year after year. For the past 2 years, I’ve been testing my ideas and strategies outside my industry with a handful of local businesses and my process has worked for them as well. I’d like to be a resource in this group so, if you have any questions in regards to using these platforms to boost your sales/leads/customers, please ask and I will answer as best as I can. You're more than welcome to ask about boosted post, SEO, GMB (google my business), Facebook ads, Instagram Ads, etc I’ve enclosed a link to a handful of posts that have worked like crazy that you’re free to model for your business.
